When the holidays start to roll around, I know I'll be doing some baking so I found this gingerbread cookie recipe. I've never been a huge fan of gingerbread cookies though. It might be because all the ones I've had are the hard kind and I'm more of a soft chewy cookie person. I'm also not a fan of any baked goods that are too spicy or gingery tasting. This recipe however, was just perfect! The cookies came out soft and chewy and had the perfect amount of spice! If you decorate it with icing they become delightful goodies that you can package and give away!
